Award-winning Chale Island, created by Mario Scianna

20-09-2022 by redazione

Another exclusive resort on the Kenyan coast has won an important international award and, as has often happened in the past, in this case too there is an Italian 'touch'.
In fact, The Sands at Chale Island Resort was ranked among the top five "overwater luxury hotels" in the special ranking drawn up by Travel + Leisure magazine, which awarded prizes to the world's best structures built on water. It is the only African resort to enter this special ranking, which also sees on the podium with it the Hôtel Palafitte in Switzerland and the Palafitos Overwater Bungalows in El Dorado Maroma, Mexico.
Chale Island, just a few kilometres south of Diani Beach, a locality on the Kenyan coast that has always been considered one of the most enchanting beaches on the African continent, is an eco-sustainable paradise imagined, designed and built by an ingenious Italian, the late Mario Scianna, former creator of the famous Nomad di Diani. Many VIPs have chosen Chale Island for a holiday in the last twenty years, including many sportsmen (Totti and Mourinho, just to name two), musicians and Hollywood actors.
The suites on Chale Island are built at the water's edge and at high tide become unique, both for the view and for the direct access to the sea. According to the trade magazine, it is not only the services, elegance and care for the environment that make the Kenyan resort stand out, but also the view, the presence of the coral reef and mangroves, the beauty of the Indian ocean, the tranquillity of not having other forms of civilisation nearby and the peculiarity of becoming a sort of floating paradise every six hours.
The way it is structured, moreover, from Chale Island one can enjoy both a fantastic equatorial sunrise over the sea and the inimitable colours of the sunset.
